 Cut Down on Choking:

For kids 2- 4 years old, serve food in the following ways:

  • Cook celery until it’s soft, so you can pierce it with a fork. Then, cut it into sticks.
  • Peel apples and cut into half inch pieces.
  • Mix in applesauce with peanut butter to spread thinly on the celery or apples.
